Been on holiday in North Wales , staying in a very nice static caravan in the middle of nowhere , lots of walking with the dog and wife , but the highlight of the week (rivalled only by a cream tea !) was a visit to the Porthmadog model shop .
I last visited it seven years ago and was thrilled with it then and whilst we were in the area I had to get a look at it again . I walked round the corner and to my horror it wasn't there !!!!! - bottom lip out time ! , then I turned around and it was there - they had moved to bigger premises across the road ! .
It's packed from floor to ceiling with toy goodness ! , plastic figures , kits , scenery and modelling equipment .
And in the centre of the shop a HUGE Napoleonic scenario !.
It is very impressive !
I asked the lady at the counter how many figures there were - she said she had never counted them but there were over three hundred in each of these columns .
They are 25mm metal figures and sadly I can't remember which manufacturer .
Evidently her husband had bought them in from a collector and it had taken two days to set them all up in the Perspex display case .
All in all an excellent day out ! - if your ever in the area its well worth a visit , such well stocked shops are few and far between nowadays .
My own modest purchase - Stretlets big box Crimean War British Light Cavalry.
